I will not declare RAILA ODINGA as the winner of the 2017 Presidential contest-CHEBUKATI tells NASA

Friday August 11, 2017-The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has responded to NASA demands to declare Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka as President and Deputy President-elect.

In a statement, IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati said he will not be coarced by NASA into declaring Raila as the 5th President of Kenya.

He noted that he will comply with the law in naming the winner of the Presidential race and not by coercion from any party or anyone.

“The Constitution and the law do not envisage a situation where a candidate in an election demands that he be declared the winner of an election based on results that he has provided to the commission,” said IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati.

NASA has maintained that Raila was leading the Presidential contest by over 8 million against Uhuru’s 7 million.
